• Dr Paul Reeves

    Engineering software Designer

    Paul Reeves is a designer of engineering software having worked both commercially and as a researcher. He has worked for Airbus, Aveva, Warwick University (Manufacturing Group, working with Jaguar Land Rover) as well as several smaller engineering oriented software companies producing CAD/CAM software. He is keen to both enthuse about the benefits engineering brings to society as well as get engineers to more actively defend their profession and its impact on the world in a society which often appears less than enthusiastic to do so. He has written for The Urban Design Journal and spiked-online, as well as having published academic papers on managing complexity in automotive design programs. Paul originally studied Aeronautics and Astronautics at Southampton University, has a PhD in industrial Aerodynamics from the University of Strathclyde and can just about recall seeing on tv the first flight of Concorde and the moon landings in 1969.
